Luggage and bags:
Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Tennis shoes, this ain't no beach.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: ----
Photo Equipment: Bring bring bring your good camera, because you will want pictures of the beautiful Lake Pontchatrain.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: Maybe a necklace fan if you are coming in the summer, because it will get real hot. And mosquito repellent, there are tons.
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: There is no getting around it. Unless there is some over-riding medical or allergic consideration, you should carry an insect repellent containing DEET. There is no risk of malaria or yellow fever, but there is a small risk at certain times of West Nile or St. Louis encephalitis. Besides, being bitten by mosquitoes is always unpleasant.
The food in this part of Louisiana is particularly tasty and is very abundant, so bring some loose fitting clothes, haha!
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: The mosquitoes can be overwhelming at times. During the summer months be sure and leave the ON! at home and bring an extra bottle or two of OFF!
